A little information about the park, which has a gorgeous view of Downtown, Elliot Bay and the Olympics! "The site of Dr. Jose Rizal Park is a favorite gathering and picnic spot for members of the Filipino community. The meadow slope site was transferred to the parks Department in 1971, and was named after Dr. Jose Rizal three years later. Rizal was a Filipino patriot who, during his short life, made lasting contributions to medicine, political and social reform, engineering and a large number of other disciplines. He was executed as a result of being accused of complicity in the Filipino insurrection of 1896. The park was formally dedicated in 1979." (Seattle City Parks)
BVM spent the day helping Craig build a path and prune the apple trees in the orchard. Yes, the park has an orchard! :) Find more information about other orchards in the city by visiting City Fruit - http://cityfruit.org/programs/orchard-stewards/.
And of course we brought some four-legged friends along to enjoy the day with us - there is a great dog park on the north end.
If you haven't been yet, you should definitely stop by the park, admire the gorgeous view, bring your dog, take a walk, and enjoy it!

Afterwards, BVM went, per tradition, to celebrate a good day and of course, have that beer!
